DFW Rocks Social Media! The all-day social media conference organized by Lissa Duty, founder of LissaDuty. com, was grown out of her passion for educating others about the use of online social networking sites for branding themselves and their businesses.

BizLinkGlobal.com

DFW Rocks Social Media Day was designed to provide attendees with ROCK-solid information and insights on how to be a Social Media POWERHOUSE. The speakers and presentations focus on providing practical How-To’s not Why-To’s. The strategies and tools shared employ methods used by the Pros to implement and manage effective social media marketing campaigns. Andrea Vahl, co-author of Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies, kicks-off the day via LIVE Streaming Video. Her presentation, Facebook Marketing for PAGES, focuses on showing the attendees how to get more “Likes” and drive interactions on their pages.

The Social House in Addison is a perfect venue for the first annual DFW Rocks Social Media Day conference—after all, getting social is what the day is about! Since the reason we use social media is to get more clients, a presentation on converting online connections to clients was quite relevant. Patty Farmer, founder of BizLink Global, an in-person and online networking community, presented Six-Figure FOLLOW UP: Connections to Clients. Patty shares tips on how to effectively network and expand a client base using a non-competitive and dynamic collaboration strategy. (Patty has a network of 75,000+.) LinkedIn is the social networking site that is frequented most often by companies, recruiters, and Fortune 500 professionals. The POWER of Being LinkedIn, by J.R. Atkins, focuses on how to leverage your LinkedIn Connections, put LinkedIn to work for you and your business, plus the key areas to SEO your LinkedIn profile.

The next speaker, Lissa, who is passionate about Twitter, presents ROCK Your Twitter: Tweet Like a Pro. She shares the strategies and tips she employs in launching successful Twitter campaigns for her clients and promoting events online.

Fred Campos, known for putting the fun in social media, presents an enlightened, light-hearted presentation on YOUR Business Interest in Pinterest. He shares his “secrets to pinning,” getting “repined,” and driving backlinks to your website. Fred throws out some tips the marketing the pros don’t normally share!

The day is winding down when the Social Media Q & A Panel takes the stage. The panelists (the Pro’s, as Lissa calls them), Giovanni Gallucci, Neil Lemons, and Mike Merrill come up to bat. They’re there to answer their questions, and provide their expert opinions. No question is too small or too big!

The final presentation is Lissa, What is RIGHT for Your Business? Social Media Sites & Tools. She focuses on providing the attendees with information and insight to determine which social networking sites and social media tools are right for their business and budget. The attendees just think the day is over when the after-event networking sponsored by BizLink Global kicks up exactly at 4:01 p.m. The after-event networking is just as important as the conference! Attendees talk one-on-one with the speakers, panelists, and the other experts who filled the room.

All in all, the day is a success with over 100 attendees at the conference, and even more at the after-event networking. Attendees walk away with their pockets full of new skills, tips, ideas, and most importantly—new friends. Lissa has one final thought to close the day: DFW will ROCK Social Media once again on Saturday, June 29 & June 30, 2013, so save the date on your calendar NOW! You won’t want to miss it!

Letter From the Editor DFW Rocks Social Media Day was born out of my passion for social media. Here’s the short version . . . In 2010, Mashable.com declared June 30th to be Social Media Day. Dale Little featured it on her blog, and requested I blog about Twitter Etiquette tips, or Twitiquette (read bit.ly/TwitiquetteSMDay2010). Social Media Day was a success for Mashable and all who celebrated worldwide! Since then, Social Media Day has been celebrated with tweetups, 2-hour events and online webinars, but this is the first all-day conference! Spring forward to June 2011 . . . DFW needed an awesome FREE Social Media Day Event. I joined with Fred Campos of Fun City Social Media, and together we promoted and presented Facebook vs. Twitter. We spoke with the attendees and compared the social networking sites, sharing the strategies and tools that worked best for us. This 2-hour event received rave reviews (with 30+ people in attendance).

Lead with personality. Amplify the real you. Be quotable. Show love. Have fun. Welcome the rascals. Make jokes. Influence influencers. Mix it up. Listen. Grow. Laugh. Help each other. Share some Fast forward to March 2012 . . . I wanted to make a day-long social media conference happen since 2010. more.

After drafting my preliminary vision, it was time to share. To introduce the concept and get feedback, ~ Vicki Flaugher @SmartWoman I went to Robin Moss, ribit.com (who is one of my closest friends) and trusted business advisor; Tony Cecala founder of the Dallas / Fort Worth WordPress Group; and Fred Campos. My major goal was to keep costs low, and I began contacting local social media authorities. Their response was overwhelmingly positive, and DFW Rocks Social Media Day was born! Your “competitors” in the social space can actually be your biggest allies. Rally your own tribe of like-minded influencers on and offline and share their best content, they will reciprocate.

Most tickets were sold by the last day of early registration—the need for this day-long social media conference was there! I learned two important things in planning this event: 1) next year, a bigger venue so more people can attend; and 2) one day is not enough time! I envision next year’s conference to be on Saturday, June 29th and Sunday, June 30th, which will allow time to have social media training, marketing strategy, blogging, and the other essential trainings necessary for local business owners to leverage the power of social media.

~ @Neil_Lemons, founder of ILiveInDallas.com

Thank you to our speakers: Andrea Vahl, Robin Moss, Patty Farmer, Fred Campos, J.R. Atkins, Giovanni Gallucci, Neil Lemons, and Mike D. Merrill for volunteering your time on a Saturday. Without each of you, DFW Rocks Social Media Day would not have been possible. Thank you to Raven Internet Marketing Tools, RavenTools.com. Without your generous support the DFW Social Media News would not have made it to print. Thank you to KEYImage Media Solutions for providing the cutting-edge audio and video solutions for this event. And for promoting online and at local group meetings, thank you to BizLink Global, DFW Social Media Marketing Group, and Dallas / Fort Worth WordPress Group. Special thanks to my friends, John Nosal, NosalCentral.com, and Robin Moss, ribit.com. Robin, your assistance in finding and securing the venue, countless hours of listening, planning and helping me to ensure a successful execution is fully appreciated. (I owe you a McDonald’s!) John, your assistance in bringing my vision, the DFW Social Media News, to fruition will always be remembered. Without you having taken my early call that day, I might have dismissed the idea by day’s end. Robin and John, you have been my sounding board and source of encouragement. I cannot close this letter without thanking the attendees, my online friends. Every “Like,” “Share” and Tweet ensured the success of the promoting and sell-out of this event. The next time someone tells you that social media doesn’t work, use the success of this conference as an example that it does work, 100%. Every relationship mentioned above was developed and grown from an online connection. I will end by saying . . . Mark your calendars NOW for Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30, 2013, because DFW will once again ROCK Social Media Day! Lissa Duty One of the biggest mistakes I see small business owners make is trying to do everything themselves - from bookkeeping to marketing to product distribution. At the very minimum seek out a great virtual assistant to help you with the work that keeps you busy and prevents you from being able to grow your business. ~ @NatalieMacneil, founder of SheTakesonTheWorld.com, author of She Takes on the World: A Guide to Being Your Own Boss, Working Happy, and Living on Purpose

When it comes to social media, employment law and cases are changing everyday. Chances are the HR professional at your organization is aware of social media but has no concept of its benefits as they are only exposed to its use in employee investigations and sexual harassment cases. The scary reality is that these same folks are also drafting your company’s social media policy. It’s up to marketing professionals to sit down and discuss with their HR team how the tools can be used to help improve employee communication, build employment brand, and share job openings all with social media. ~ Jessica Miller-Merrell @Blogging4Jobs, author of Tweet This!

Social Video Is the Future of Online Marketing! The most successful businesses are usually the early adopters of new technologies, and this holds true in the world of online marketing. It is no longer enough to just have a landing page published in the vast space of the web. Consumers expect businesses to have an interactive website with relevant content, and they overwhelmingly make purchase decisions based on information delivered to them on social, blog, email and mobile platforms. Social video is by far the most powerful tool any business can employ to build relationships with potential customers. More and more people are looking for, talking about, and purchasing products online. They gravitate toward social video content which holds them on your site longer and converts more of them to customers more than static text content. Businesses that embrace social video and develop great content have a tremendous opportunity to engage with customers before their competition, increasing market share and establishing themselves as an industry leader. ~Mark Neace @KeyImageMedia, producer of award-winning video for 20 plus years

There is no such thing as a “silver bullet” social media tactic that will save your organization. Every situation varies depending on the nature of your work and your intended outcomes. Volunteer mobilization strategies don’t have the same as issues fundraising or advocacy online. There are some strategies for using social media that apply in most situations for maximum guerrilla impact.

Social Networking, just like Mail, E-Mail, Video, Blogging and Article Campaigns is another strategy to get the word out to your potential client about who you are / your brand. Are you reminding your customers that they need you / your product / your services regularly and effectively? If you are NOT marketing your business online you are missing the bus! If you are marketing your business online, but half-heartedly you are throwing yourself under the bus! BTW … posting once a day to your social media accounts isn’t marketing your business online.

Keep in mind that social media is not an easy button. You can’t just order up some and walk away knowing it will get done. It takes participation, thoughtfulness and consistency. If you’re checking social media off some big marketing check list, you’re going to fail. You have to want to do it and do it consistently over time to be successful.

The point of social media isn’t to be everywhere on every new site, but to be great at where you choose to go. ~ Scott Stratten @UnMarketing author of UnMarketing: Stop Marketing. Start Engaging

It is all about relationships… I am not in the B2B or B2C business. I choose to be in the P2P (People to People) business. At the end of the day, people do business with people. ~ @PattyFarmer, founder of BizLinkGlobal.com, co-author of Making Your Connections Count

The most important thing to be in business -- whether you’re talking online or face-to-face -- is yourself. If you can’t be yourself when you go to work every day, you’re in the wrong business. Period. Instead of spending all of your time trying to be someone whom you think your customers will like, start with being you. That’s the person your friends invite over for dinner. The person your boyfriend/ girlfriend/ husband/ wife / kids / mother / father loves. Because THAT’S the person people want to do business with. Regardless of what we might think, people don’t do business with contests, hex colors, or snazzy logos. They do business with people and brands that make them feel like human beings. And I don’t believe in the notion of B2B or B2C business. Business is always H2H -- Human-to-Human. So start every day and every concept with being you. After all - everyone else is already taken! ~ Erika Napoletano @RedHeadWriting, founder of RedHeadWriting.com, author of The Power of Unpopular

Consistency is key -- your social media audience will come to expect that from you and it’s your job to deliver. ~ @CarlaYoung, founder of MOMeoMagazine.com
